In South Dakota, maps are drawn and approved by the state legislature and signed into law by the governor. Maps drawn in the 2021 redistricting process will be in place for the next ten years, so it is crucial that South Dakotans share their communities' needs with map drawers. Together we can ensure that all communities, no matter race, background, zip code, or income, are fairly represented in our map-drawing process and have equitable resources. Let your voice be heard by speaking out for your neighbors.
Your voice deserves to be heard! Here are ways you can elevate your voice and share about your community's needs with map drawers:
